    Cell Rot


    I have already lost a lovely razor because cell rot. Back then I wasnít aware of the disease at all and the diagnosis was made in this forum.

    The following is a razor that I just received from an auction. It is a well preserved vintage razor that I liked a lot. Especially the scales.
    As soon as I opened the box I saw some signs of rust. I can deal with it and it doesnít bother me. However, I remember that the razor I lost from cell rot in the past began as a rust. I didnít bother back then, but after 6 months the razor was dead.

    Fact is I really like these scales and I certainly donít want to change them just in case this is indeed cell rot. So, I wonder if there is anyone here that can be certain that this is, or this is not cell rot.

    Thank you very much.

    You sure like to put words in peoples mouths. But then again that's how the right operates. Just twist someone's words so it meets their agenda.
